Wisconsin Wildlife | Animals | Trail Camera Videos | Wildlife Videos | Underwater Videos

Wisconsin wolves have a strong sense of hearing which benefits them by helping them hear their predators and prey from long distances away. Wolves also have very strong legs which allow them to sprint up to thirty-five mph on short distances when running after prey or away from predators. You will generally find Wisconsin wolves in wooded areas; however, they do tend to go into grassy territories and meadows when following their prey. Their diet consists of varieties of: deer, moose, caribou, elk, bison, musk-oxen, and beavers. Wisconsin wolves have a behavior much like your typical house dog. The wolf likes to play and frolic a lot with other wolves. They spend eight percent of their time resting. Wolves are pretty much harmless and won't bother you unless you bother them or put them into danger. More Wisconsin Wildlife!

Wolf in WI

Wisconsin wolves have many advantages to their existence. One major advantage is that they can use their loud howl to either call their pack together or warn the others of nearby danger. Wolves also put a scent on the trees around them to warn others of their territory. The color of their fur also helps them to blend into their surroundings when going after prey or hiding from lurking predators. One of the problems that Wisconsin wolves have is loss of their habitat. This is due to: logging, bad storms, and other natural events.
